Choosing what to wear while on vacation and on your daily grind are two completely different battlefields; styling in the metro takes a lot of consideration since you might be a subject of any forms of harassment that may lead you to “tiis ganda look”, mapapa uber ka kahit wala sa budget ma itawid lang ang FASCHIIOOWWNNN~~~*with feelings* I always map out my day and dress accordingly, that’s the number one rule when it comes to Power Dressing. No wonder it was a breath of fresh air when Converse incorporated the Nike Flyknit technology along with it’s innovated Chuck 2. Who wouldn’t want a pair sneaker that is breathable and has a sockliner softer than your favorite flipflops?

So the Valentines fever isnt over! As Google Philippines hosted another creative way to use (no bias) the most efficient Video Calling App to find both Vloggers, Daniel Marsh and the latest Youtube Sensation, PBB Housemate, “Baninay Bautista” A DATE! as in someone-you-go-out-with-to-get-to-know 😀 Before anything else, it was on the night of Feb 21. We were invited to go out for a Dating Night with a twist, obviously by using Google Duo . From there I got a hint that something strange will happen, yes! every google event really scares me, sometimes it looks so simple but, sigh, it’s just something you just cant underestimate. So, I brought with me a sacrificial lamb, hahahah!!! I brought Chael, a Vlogger friend of mine, who I think is perfect for the task.
Few weeks ago, Penshoppe recently released its Summer 2017 collection along with the opening of its newest flagship store dubbed as—Penshoppe Capital. The collection features a myriad of stylishly trendy pieces that are not only affordable, but keeps you stylishly suitable for Philippine weather, yet as always takes cue from global fashion trends. On the same day, we had an impromptu shopping spree at the same branch. I went on a panic since most of the items are new and not of those that I was eyeing days before the actual shopping. Join me as I list down some of my lessons. KEEP CALM AND GO SUMMER READY With Globe Wanderland happening this weekend, My picks has to be inspired by the free spirit of music and arts festivals. Good thing I found a handful of neutrals and mutable colors to incorporate in my looks. The problem is, how to think of what to wear in an ocean of new items I am not familiar of??? Keep Calm Duane! hahahha So I look around and realized what were those …
People cant help but notice how my skin looks better in contrast years ago. I never knew I’d be talking about this now. Ever since, I usually preach “How Confidence Can Be A Game Changer” though, no matter how my confidence grow, there’s one thing it cant fix. —> Scars 🙁 My pimples were never the loner type, they prefer hanging out by groups of at least 3 and they were really clingy. As I’m getting use to having scars, thinking maybe my confidence would take other people’s attention away from my scars, sad reality, I cant keep it if it’s placed in the front row, more like pawns waiting to die but NO! it’s my self esteem that dies first before my scars.
Functionality always comes first for me when I dress up. During the rainy season, the worst thing is when you get soaked wet when you are yet to begin the day. Or to do laundry when the sun is hiding behind the clouds crying all week. There was this week where I spent the parts of the day with wet shoes, still trying to be professional. Good thing my favorite brands Uniqlo and Converse has this thing for rainy season yet aesthetically speaking “presentable ” hahaha. WHAT I WEAR Water Resistant and Reversible Hoodie Jacket & Fleece Turtle Neck from Uniqlo Spray On Skinny Jeans from Topman Water Resistant High Cut Sneakers from Converse Picking The Color Pallet When it comes to color palette, I follow what’s present in the nature especially when Im in doubt. for example in this look, I pegged the colors from a fruit hahah Orange! hahahaha. God is the creator and imitating life isnt a bad thing hahaha. Check | Uniqlo Fall Winter 2016 Waterproofing My usual choice for tops will always be …
No one can deny that once you get stuck in a traffic or in an establishment under the rain, we just cant avoid being senti and starts playing songs that pulls us in an emotional vacuum or the opposite, a Party inside our head hahah, but the bottom line is, Spotify Philippines launched the latest update “Daily Mix” that caters a Perfect Listening Session where ever we are, whatever mood we are in to 😀
Nothing beats a utilitarian styling when it comes to the stormy season, unfortunately Philippines will always be a forever summer country, that is why over layering is the worst thing to do this season especially if you commute daily. Of all the possible top you can wear, I really prefer wearing Hooded Parkas under this weather, aside from the spaces it offers, it is also easy to style only if you know the rules.
Indulging on a Style Break incorporated with Traditional Batik Motif Printed Polo from Uniqlo Sets the 1st look for my Uniqlo Batik Motif Lookbook Series,Yeah! You can never go wrong with Denim on Denim! Style and Functionality always define your looks, you dont put on denim jackets without utilizing it’s features, otherwise, Im sure you’re just one of those dead fishes that goes with the flow.
As a Mindanaoan, I grew up appreciating the beauty and how rich Batik Motif talks about culture in every design composition. There’s a lot to tell about the Batik however this collection actually aims to help Factory Workers with every purchase on this collection with their “Empowerment Project”. After the Jollibee x Uniqlo campaign I did, I feel so honored how Uniqlo noticed how much I really like their Batik Collection. Then poof! here I am sharing “How to incorporate Traditional Batik Motif in your Contemporary Look”. but first, let me orient you about the Batik Motif and what makes it relevant.
